I made this very easy, healthy recipe today for lunch from Bon Appetit. This was my first time making quinoa. I will definitely be looking for more recipes. Not only was it tasty, but I loved reading up on all the health benefits. I halved the recipe easily to serve just me (for the next few days) and the only substitution I made was to use grape tomatoes as I could not find baby heirlooms.
